A number of Indian Muslims and cultural scholars attended the annual commemorating meeting that

was held at the Iran’s Embassy in New Delhi on June 1.

The participants celebrated the political legacy of Imam Khomeini and also stressed the importance of his legacy in modern day politics.

Iranians across the country and outside Iran annually hold mourning ceremonies to mark the departure of Imam Khomeini.

Rouhollah Mousavi Khomeini, who came to be known as Imam Khomeini, was born in the small town of Khomein on September 24, 1902.

Coming from a family of scholars who for generations had devoted their lives to offering religious guidance to the hungry-for-knowledge population, young Rouhollah began his education by memorizing the holy Qur'an and was later sent to Arak (1920-21) and finally to Qom (1923) to complete his religious studies.

Imam Khomeini changed the lives of Iranians and inspired countless others in the world by guiding one of the greatest revolutionary movements of modern history to victory.

Ayatollah Khomeini passed away on June 3, 1989, eleven days after he was taken to hospital for an operation to stop internal bleeding in May 1989.
